with gordon brown's government. i think around march 2009, may have been a bit later, i think that's when gordon brown announced that the referendum that had been promised in the 2005 manifesto in the european constitution, they were going to renege on that promise. and again, i think it was a male or the telegraph and "the sun" who particularly "the sun," i shall just be to "the sun," called within four a special election in the autumn of 2000. because his referendum was a hard-fought battle, population live far wanted that referendum on the constitution. so we have followed up with each other but i still saw him. >> that wasn't really the question at all. by the 31st of march, 2009, "the sun" was moving towards the conservative party, is that true or not? >> sorry, i thought i had said at the beginning in answer to that question, that was quite the way i would describe it, more we were running out of ways to support mr. brown's government. >> moving towards withdrawing its support for the liberal party, could we agree on that formulation? >> we could. >> could i just ask about one sente
of james rupert murdoch, from that point of course there is no evidence the jury meeting with mr. brown. is that fair? you did say your list may not be complete in relation to mr. brown. >> i know my list is not complete. i am not sure. i'm sure tony blair had to release the formal and informal meetings and i'm pretty sure if they have, there will be meetings at downing street with mr. brown from that. in may, right up until september. i don't know how many there are. >> the topic of conversation on the third of may 2009 to remember any specific events. did it cover political issues? >> it was done in general terms. there were people at the lunch, but again late 2009, i'm not quite sure that my memory is correct, but i am pretty sure the european constitution debate what shall we say at large as well as afghanistan at the time. so they may have been two of the issues. >> we know on the ninth of september 2009, mr. james murdoch called mr. cameron is the drink of the george that "the sun" was support the conservative party in the next election and the headline was on the front page. i th
and on the other hand you have brown? surely that must have been carried out? >> with respect to the offer to make a proposal of the dead, to the shows we didn't already own, that was a part of it. there was a view later on when it was thought that is likely that we might attempt to do this, do not, to try to avoid becoming a political issue in the middle of an election, but not with respect to what the likely or possible outcomes of the election were. >> mr. murdoch, to benefit the source merit, examined on two levels. there's the legal analysis or you may be advised that your case is strong. i'll ask you a few comments on the. then there's the political dimension which is however the legal case is, we still have got to get this through because the opposition we might face. on the political stage, that sort of discussion must have taken place, didn't? >> yes. it takes place with respect to what sort of regulatory scrutiny and transaction is going to come under. and you make an assessment around that. certainly while on the regulatory site on competition issues and plurality issues were confident

the roll. quorum call: mr. brown: thank you. i ask unanimous consent to expense with the quorum call. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. brown: and i ask unanimous consent to address the house as if in morning business for no more than 10 minutes. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. brown: thank you, mr. president. last week the vice president of the united states was in my state in ohio in the youngstown area in northeast ohio and he saw what i've been seeing in my state for the last several months and he heard what i've been hearing from so many ohioans in the last several months. he went to the lordstown auto assembly plant which makes the chevy cruze and he saw what we've been seeing in my state, where manufacturing finally is coming back. from 200 to 2010, from early 2000 to january 2010, the manufacturing sector in this country lost a huge number of jobs, more than 5 million jobs. now, the -- about the 35 years before that manufacturing jobs in this country were pretty constant. they were up and down, but in 1997 oar 1998, we had about the same number of ma

to a conversation with mr. brown in 2006 am a labour conference, d.c. that? paragraph 36. >> yes. >> if it was at the labour conference in manchester that year, we knew because it was announced that mr. blair would be leaving within the year and, therefore, in all probability mr. brown would be the next prime minister. are you with a? >> i think that was a given, yeah. >> he said to you, are you say, i remember that meeting well because mr. brown told me, had it on very good authority that river burdock would appoint me as editor of "the sun" when rebekah was promoted. you see that? >> yes. >> he was effectively telling you that he was already, rupert murdoch's decision one, that rebekah wade would be promoted, and that too, you would be inclined to be the next editor of "the sun." >> that's what he was saying, yes.

, conrad, johnson of south dakota, brown of ohio, cardin, whitehouse, kerry, akaka, and harkin. mr. reid: i ask unanimous consent that the mandatory quorum under rule 22 be waived. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: madam president, this is the -- i have spoken before, madam president, abouts the importance of the f.d.a. bill, something we have to get done. literally, people's lives dpep depend on it. it addresses so many things with the f.d.a. to make it a better position. we have to get this done. as i've said before, if my republican colleagues don't like the bill, offer an amendment, offer an amendment to take that out, put something in, if you don't like it. but i would hope that we don't have to go through voting on cloture on monday night. we should be legislating this coming monday. so i am stunged that once again our motion to proceed when there's been an agreement that we would proceed to this with relevant amendments, which everybody says that that's what they want to do -- it's not germane amendments, which is very narrow;s it relevant amendments. it gives peopl
are there. i think it is important to accept -- i think this goes for david cameron, gordon brown, tony blair -- that the amount of time and energy that they, not just the people who work for them, but they as prime ministers have to devote and dedicate to kind of dealing with what are ultimately media management issues. it's grown. it's grown and it's growing because of the way the media has developed. i think that's a problem too. >> then you continue, they only have power if politicians let them have power. >> yeah. >> by which of course you mean it is within the gift of politicians to prevent press having power. but that might of course have obvious ramifications for free press. it also presupposes politicians are not going to yield to the obvious influences and powers which might intrude on their decision-making. would you agree with that? >> well, i think a lot of this started under margaret thatcher. i think that newspapers were given a sense of power. the numbers that we see, the peerages and the knighthoods and the sense they were almost part of her team. i think it changed und
that the senator from massachusetts, senator brown, introduced something. but the c.b.o. scored it as not bringing in any money. but we've all agreed that we shouldn't increase the deficit to do this and we should find a way to pay for it and our preferred way is closing the loophole that everyone admits is abusive and a way to get around the payroll tax. we're willing to sit heed and listen to other suggestions from the other side of the aisle so we can help our college students. bottom line is, mr. president, in conclusion, we have to pass this bill. it's an extremely important bill for the future of our country. because every time a young man or young woman deserves to go a college of their choice and doesn't go, goes to a different one that less suits their needs, because they can't afford it, they lose, their family loses, and america loses. so let's stop the games. let's come together. let's pass this bill, and let's make sure that students of this and future generations are able to afford the college education that is so important to a better future for their lives. i yield the floor. the p
them through exactly what the kids are going to have to do to get into brown or harvard, you know, princeton, stanford. i thought a couple of things. one is this, this is appalling. and number two, i better get on the shtick because these people are trying to -- i talked to parents there who has been amassing brak sheets as they are called. it is almost like a resume for kids. the seventh, eighth grade, compiling videos of their sports performance is, music recitals, saving of mentions of them in the local newspaper, saving assays or something the kids had written, all in the interest of this glorious day when they would get into brown. c-span: what makes cat: qualified to testament to get into college? >> guest: well, she's extremely smart. she had worked at around i believe. she had been -- i guessed she started in the admissions department at brown and worked there for several years and she has a very wide network of acquaintances than friends. so i think she always knows what is hot in the academic marketplace. c-span: what did it cost for people to go to the seminar? >> guest
] good morning, how are you all? i'm judith brown, and we are a next generation civil rights organization that believes that change is going to happen from the grass roots up. we support grass roots movements to work for racial justice. as you can see from all that you've heard so far, you know, in 2008, turnout among african-american and young voters were up. in 2010, we sat home, and others were planning. in 2010, there was a sweep of state legislatures by the republican party, and i will say i'm from a non-partisan organization so i'm just telling you the facts so in 2010, when they took over the state legislature, they moved quickly in 2011 to redistrict themselves back into power for 20-30 years. in 2011 they also moved to put in place new rules around voting because they saw changing demographics in this country, and they saw we could actually turn out in good numbers when we wanted to. so they put in place new laws, and then they didn't stop. in 2012, they tried again. in some states, like north carolina, where they passed the legislation for photo id, they were going to do it by a
. and this is important to 7.5 million students and their families. and when i concluded my remarks, senator brown from massachusetts took to the floor and he said he -- he expressed shock that i was concerned about republican filibusters and started to talk about how cooperative the republicans have been, pointing to a few issues where we have worked together. look, i am here to say that working together in a bipartisan manner on a few issues is fine. but we need to work together on a bipartisan manner on almost all the issues that we work on here because the american people are counting on us. so because there's a handful of issues on which the republicans cooperated, let's not come down to the floor and say everything is perfect and republicans aren't blocking us when in fact they are blocking us. now, the democrats essentially retook the senate in 2007, and since then these republican filibusters have been off the charts. and don't take my word for it. listen to congressional scholars thomas mann and nor man ornstein. they wrote an opinion piece in "the washington post" based on a study and unanimo
into the future. thank you, mr. president. i yield the floor. mr. brown: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from ohio. mr. brown: thank you, mr. president. i rise in support of the same legislation. i appreciate the work of senator murray and senator klobuchar. i introduced this legislation with senator harkin of iowa and senator reed of rhode island. in the last couple of weeks i've been to cleveland community college and the community college at the university of cincinnati. virtually there was universal support among students for this legislation. we have no business -- we have no business letting the interest rate double. the vote that will take place in less than an hour gives us an opportunity to help students in a huge way. the average ohio graduate of a four-year university has a $27,000 student debt. if we're going to pile on that -- pile more money on that debt by allowing the interest rate to go from 3.4% to 6.8%, it means that student is less likely to be able to buy a house, less likely to be able to probably start a family, less likely to be able to start a busine
? the presiding officer: the senator from massachusetts. mr. brown: wow. that was interesting. i remember the senator was speaking before me before we left she was praising the republicans for working with her, one republican specifically, about how appreciative she was about working together and taking the time in a bipartisan manner to work forward on a very important piece of legislation that she was spearheading and we worked for. we didn't filibuster that. we didn't filibuster the postal bill, we didn't filibuster the violence against women, the crowdfunding or the insider trading bill but all of a sudden we're filibustering now. bottom line, we wants an opportunity to have an alternative proposal and have a full and fair debate and i think the american people are smart. i know the smerp are -- american people are smarter than that. and i stand before you today to just reference that most students and parents know that in july the fixed interest rates on subsidized government student loans are set to double. that was very eloquently pointed out just now. but let's be clear. the vast
to my web site and tell your story. brown.senate.gov/college brown.senate.gov/collegeloanstor y. i would like to tell my colleagues because i think putting a human face on this, the students, parents who are struggling, grandparents who are struggling, can make a real difference. madam president, i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: mr. schumer: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new york. mr. schumer: i ask unanimous consent the quorum be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection, the quorum is dispensed with. mr. schumer: mr. president, we're still here, and we haven't really gotten much of a response from our colleagues on the other side of the aisle about our legislation that would help students throughout america pay their tuition costs and get a reasonable amount of interest on their loans. and i don't know what my colleagues are waiting for. we all know the crisis in america. college has become more and more important. to many it's a necessity. and it's become more and more expensive
for america. >> gentlemen, before i pitch to my colleague ron brown, editorial director of the nj. give a round of applause for rich, john and eliot. [applause] >> thank you. all of you have sat through a incredibly nutritious course. two panels on difference between domestic and foreign policy between president obama and mitt romney. now comes the dessert. >> a bunch of twinkies? >> exactly before either man can implement policies in 2013 they have to win election in november. for the final panel we'll, more how the issue debate will affect the election campaign. to do so we have a joel, who is the president of the benniso in strategy group. -- president obama and advised a array of governors, and mayors. [inaudible] -- most unexpected result. kevin is advisor to the mitt romney campaign in 2008. as a campaign's national press secretary and communication strategists, -- former press secretary john boehner and vice president of jda front line, -- he had quartered in charleston, south carolina. >> you're all invited down. >> we'll meet at hank's. peter brown is assistant director of the
for debate over the next few hours? >> one of the biggest ones is senator john mccain and sherrod brown of bohon leota would have a lot of people prescription drugs from canada which would be of a lower-cost that's something we've seen come out in the senate for the past few years now but it always gets a lot of support but never quite enough to actually get adopted and will require 60 votes to get it adopted so we are not expecting it to meet that threshold. >> why do supporters say this bill is necessary? >> the programs funded in these fda bill to give them a lot of its money to do some of these reviews for drugs and devices on medical products. i think the prescription drug part is about 60% of all of the money they get in the prescription drugs comes from the user fees put in this bill so if they didn't have it they would lose a lot of money and have to fire a lot of staff they would start getting pink slips to employees this summer. >> what about the administration or what is their view of the bill? >> they've come out with administration policy saying they support the well and wa
and merkley and sanders and the presiding officer, senator brown. this amendment addresses the very same issue that the senator from maine was talking about, and that is how do we bring down the price of prescription drugs? thousand do we get competition -- how do we get competition into the market for prescription drugs? we have a circumstance today which, an anticompetitive, anticonsumer practice is engaged in, and our amendment will change the law so that that practice can no longer be engaged in. now the practice i'm talking about is the entering into so-called pay for delay settlements between brand name drugs, brand-name pharmaceutical companies and generic manufacturers that have the effect, these pay-for-delay settlements have the effect of delaying timely access to generic drugs. these agreements between these companies shield billions of dollars in sales each year from effective competition. the pharmaceutical companies benefit from this lack of competition, and they do so at the expense of consumers. they do so at the expense of the federal government, since the federal government i

. the presiding officer: the senator from ohio. mr. brown: i continue and want to family size the remarks that senator lautenberg made. it makes no sense that district judges -- i've not been here that long, but what i've seen happen in the last couple, three years about judges appointed by the president of the united states being slow walked or just ignored or blocked in this body is just outrageous. my first month in office, i was presented with a republican judge coming from a republican president, 2007, approved by my predecessor, senator dewine, and my seat mate, my colleague, senator voinovich. i met with her. i talked with her. i sent up to the judiciary committee my approval. she was confirmed within the first quarter of my first three months -- was confirmed in the second or third month that i was here, because i believed that the president of the united states should have the right to choose judges as long as they're qualified. that's why i ask us to move forward on these judicial nominations. in june 2010, u.s. district judge james carr took senior status creating a vacancy in
any longer. i went to browns sporting goods, and i got my first racquet. and the salesperson said, well, what kind do you want? i said, what does $8.29 buy? [laughter] so i got it because i loved the color. purple's my favorite color. lavender, violates all of those -- violets, all of those are my favorite. and i would sleep with my racquet every night, and i would dream about winning anding with number one. [laughter] so when i see this racquet i'm, like, oh, i love it, i love it. [laughter] just like linus, you know, with your blankie? that's how i am with a tennis racquet. when i see a racquet. but the biggest thing is the materials in the racquet. they're so light. my wood b racquet was 13 and three-quarter ounces. oh, my god -- nobody plays -- well, maybe fedderrer. sampras' was pretty hefty when he played. but the aerodynamics are great. the sweet spot be's a lot bigger. i can go on and on. and now they've got this string. all the pros are talking about the string they use, that's all they talk about. oh, it's got little sharp things in the strings, so the spins take more. l
. so you're, you know, the president of colorado university, hank brown -- who, by the way, has stepped down. he must wake up every morning and think, my god, he will not give up. it cost the university so much money to get rid of these people even when they have a great case. play jarrism, shoddy scholarship, there was so much wrong, yet it will continue going through the courts. the lesson identify gotten if -- i've gotten if you look at inside higher ed or one of these industry nude letter -- newsletters, they periodically run advice on how administrators can gently push these people out. and one of them i was sort of shocked to read was how an administrator can say to a professor for whom it's time to go, well, you can still teach one class, okay? so one guy wrote in saying that they had tried this at his school, you know, so they had hired a new, young professor, dynamic professor to take the place of this aging professor that everybody agreed was incompetent. and then they had this fight over who was going to teach this one class because the professor -- well, you promised i could

campuses working with a pet. i've been to berkeley california and i've been to brown and to georgetown, yale to defend israel and i do it from the left in part because one of the things i want to give credit to as the netanyahu government. the right republican party, whether the history of the united states three government leaders have said pro-things from the house of representatives. bill clinton, barack obama and benjamin netanyahu made a very strong pro-gay statement. is one of the few times when the republicans did not stand up to applaud him. but the fact is that if your position is that you're just going to defend whatever the israeli government does, then your credibility as a worldwide defender of israel is weekend. i do not think it is possible and the administration hasn't is hasn't done it to say it's israel's responsibility to get piece. what israel needs to do is make it clear that if there is not a genuine two-state solution with real security for israel it is not israel's fault and there are political pressures and here's the deal. there a clearly political pressures w
governor bentley in alabama is doing, governor christie has had to do, governor brown is now facing in california -- they have let that state go so far out of control, it's going to be difficult to bring it back. but they have to make tough choices. so if we do that, i believe we will get some positive impact on the economy just from the confidence that restores. senator conrad, i see senator lieberman's here. i would be willing to yield back if you're ready to use some time now. mr. conrad: i would like to say to my colleague we have 17 minutes left on this side. we have four senators left to speak. you've got, i think, probably 54, 53 minutes left, something like that. senator lieberman, if you could take about four minutes, if that would work for you. mr. lieberman: i was hoping for four and a quarter minutes. mr. sessions: i yield 4 minutes to the senator from our side. mr. lieberman: thank you. mr. sessions: a flat 8 -- mr. lieberman: pardon? mr. sessions: you'd have a flat 8 minutes. mr. lieberman: that's very generous of my friend. i thank the senator from north dakota, the s
